    You're welcome! I'm going to have to ride my old bike some before I could make that claim (14.6 being bettter than 14.4). They seem pretty close in behavior.

    Clarifying my thoughts on frame size a little, I'd like to say part of what size you're happy with will depend on how you want to use the bike. With my human-powered bikes I have the saddle adjusted so my knee is only slightly bent at the bottom of the pedal stroke. I do the same with my e-bikes. My medium X-1 doesn't come close to allowing this. For a good while I convinced myself I could live with it, that the motor made up for not being able to maximize my muscle input.

    When I would switch to my regular bike it felt funny: I was up really high; it was a long stretch to get my toes on the ground; my legs seemed too straight at the bottom of pedalstrokes. (At the same time, it was awesome pedaling a 25-lb bike with skinnier tires--street slick style, even, though it's an MTB, and inflated to 60psi--I felt like Superman, as with the X-1 I try to ride as much as possible at 0 PAS. Awesome except the two times I slid out on wet pavement and went down. )

    The turning point may have been when I took a loop ride that started by following an old railroad grade (easy, right?) and continued up, and up, for 29 miles, some of it through deep gravel/broken rock. In spite of my efforts to conserve battery, by the top of the climb (2000' gain) it was at 30%. No problem, as the rest was going to be mostly downhill. Except there was an insane headwind for the first few miles (flat or nearly so, and paved).

    It wore me out. Kept getting down to 20%, shutting off assist (or shutting off battery entirely), and sweating like a horse. FINALLY made it to all downhill and sheltered from the wind, and really had a blast, but Iwouldn't try another 44-mile ride like that without being able to maximize my legpower.

    Thanks bengreens
    So 14.6 feels better than 14.4?

    The flashed bike had Controller Software CRX10NC4818i132014.5 Now it's CRX10NC4818i132014.6 My first X-1 has the same software as yours.

    Great info K442 and bengreens. Sounds like I am firmly in the middle. Will probably opt for large. But appreciate the input.

    I got the firmware reflashed on my newer X-1 and it's great. Behaves a lot like my older bike now, which, like yours IIRC, has the ....xxx14.4 firmware. I didn't try to redo any of the settings, as from everything I've read, most of them are locked down, and for the ones that aren't, I don't have enough confidence in my computer abilities and analytical skills (in gauging the results in actual use) to try.

    Regarding the brake sensor thing, I mentioned them in response to eskachig's question "Does the M600 motor have a brake sensor connector?" I had considered installing one as a way to avoid hard shifts in higher PAS levels, which has been a major pain for me.

    My 2 cents worth on the size discussion. I'm just under 6 feet and have a 32 inseam. I've owned 6 bikes over the last 40 years, always size L, either 19 or 19.5 inches. I always felt like I was stretched to maximum reach on most large frames and made adjustments with stems and seat rail position. So I bought a medium size X1. I rode my new X1 medium yesterday for 14 miles on rolling trails and pavement. It felt great, no knee pain today. Seat post is set about 0.5 inches below maximum height. I did change the stem to a 35 degree, 110mm length stem. Raising the handlebars about 1 inch for a more upright riding position. I'm 67 and wont be flying down knarly single tracks. I do spend a considerable amount of time hill-climbing and didn't feel uncomfortable standing on the pedals yesterday. I'm thinking this medium is going to work great for my needs. If it doesn't, I'll just sell it and get a large. One more thing, the 152 cranks are short, agree with another forum comment that 165 would be the perfect solution. Any one know a source for these? PS This bike is the best toy I ever got, I love it!

    Stem mount that may or may not be an option for your setup

    I thought I had seen a complete OE style mount on thingaverse but can't find it now, it must not have had Bafang in the name, maybe it was under 8fun or one of the other more common names?

    I know I have seen the mount listed for sale from one of the bafang vendors, just don't remember which one.

    Does anyone know where I can get replacement bar clamps for the 860c display? I wiped out and snapped both. Thinking of 3D printing some with a more flexible plastic, but am wondering if there are any more options out there.

    I do not feel stretched out on my medium X1
    It does not feel too big to me
    It feels about like my other medium frame bikes except for the top tube height.
    in fact, I am always scooching back on the seat to stretch out a bit more.

    I am 5’7” ish and glad i got the small. I do mostly technical single tracks with tight turns so the small is definitely better for me.
